  • San Francisco becomes first U.S. city to ban sales of e-cigs

    San Francisco banned the sale of e-cigarettes Tuesday, making it the first U.S. city to do so. The ordinance pits San Francisco against one of its most prominent hometown startups, e-cigarette maker Juul Labs. Juul said the ordinance is counterproductive and will fuel a black market for e-cigs. The city of San Francisco on Tuesday voted to impose a blanket ban on e-cigarettes — making it the first American city to outlaw the sale, distribution and manufacturing of vaping products.  The sweeping restriction also puts San Francisco at odds with one of its most prominent hometown startups, Juul Labs, which last...

    FULL TITLE: Conditions On The Streets Of San Francisco Are Comparable To “The Slums Of Mumbai, Delhi, Mexico City, Jarkarta, And Manila” Once upon a time, some of the most beautiful cities in the entire world were on the west coast, but now those same cities are degenerating into drug-infested cesspools of filth and garbage right in front of our eyes.  San Francisco is known as the epicenter for our tech industry, and Los Angeles produces more entertainment than anyone else in the world, and yet both cities are making headlines all over the world for other reasons these days. ...

    Recent investigations into the ever-worsening living conditions have found that liberal California is home to some of the "filthiest slums" in the world. Californian cities Los Angeles and San Fransisco have been found to be so dirty, that conditions, in some areas, are worse than third world countries such as Kenya or India.

    ~Snip~ For those of us whove lived in The City for awhile, it takes a lot to get us to raise an eyebrow: A dude walking down the street wearing nothing but a Giants cap and a cock sock? We call that Tuesday. A lady whos dyed her dogs fur pink to match her own? Thats just Lisa. Paying $900 month at age 37 to have three roommates and no living room? Thats called adulthood. There are oodles of quirky things we take for granted here, but there are also sad ones to which weve become all too accustomed: Expecting...
  • GOP Again Eyes Sanctuary Cities Ban Due to Political Tide

    Texas Republicans have spent years trying to crack down on illegal immigration across the southern border with Mexico. Emboldened by the election of Donald Trump, however, the time may finally be right for the GOP to mobilize an assault on loosely defined "sanctuary cities," especially with two large counties eyeing such policies. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott has pushed the issue to the front of his unofficial agenda for 2017, pledging in interviews and on social media to sign into law a "ban" on cities and local governments that are seen as protecting people in the U.S. illegally, with sanctions such...
  • If You See This “Contraption” While Walking In Public, You May Want To Walk The Other Way..

    FULL TITLE: If You See This “Contraption” While Walking In Public, You May Want To Walk The Other Way IMMEDIATELY Public urination has typically been considered inappropriate — and usually illegal as well. But one California city recently decided that people urinating in public wasn’t such a bad thing, as long as they were doing it in a designated, open-air urinal, according to Fox News. In January, San Francisco’s Dolores Park was equipped with an open-air urinal following complaints that too few bathrooms were available, and people were relieving themselves wherever they wanted. But not everyone has embraced the government’s...

    San Francisco prides itself as a tolerant place, but it is closed off to one thing: Indiana. On Thursday, San Francisco Mayor Edwin Lee, a Democrat, directed all City Departments under his authority to bar publicly funded travel to the Hoosier State. The decision followed Indiana Republican Gov. Mike Pences decision to sign a religious freedom bill that critics say effectively sanctions discrimination of LGBT citizens by private businesses. We stand united as San Franciscans to condemn Indianas new discriminatory law, Lee said in a statement. San Francisco taxpayers will not subsidize legally-sanctioned discrimination against lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender...

    The new White House report that issued a dire warning about the nations changing climate comes on the heels of another study that illustrated how those changes could leave the world's largest coastal cities submerged in water. On Tuesday, President Obama stressed in an interview with TODAYs Al Roker that climate change is already an issue costing the nation in numerous ways. "This is a problem that is affecting Americans right now," he said after the release of the new National Climate Assessment report, a comprehensive review of climate change and its impact on the country. "Whether it means increased...

    There once was a popular Indian teacher named Papa G, who drew students from far and wide. People flocked to see him and hear his words of wisdom. One lucky man who was able to attend one of his retreats spoke to Papa G, with camera in hand. The visitor asked the guru what hed like to say to the multitudes all around the world vying to come to India to see him. Papa G smiled an impish grin and said, Stay home. Papa Gs words remind me a bit of Dorothy, who journeyed all around Oz, only to find...

    Theres never a good time or place to go on an anti-gay tirade, but onstage at a club in San Francisco owned by a gay man, in front of many gay fans, is probably near the bottom of the list. Michelle Shocked, a singer-songwriter whose sexuality was once fairly ambiguous, stunned fans Sunday night at Yoshis Jazz Club with a homophobic rant, according to USA Today. The 51-year-old singer reportedly said that if Californias Proposition 8, which effectively bans gay marriage, is overturned, it will be the downfall of civilization, and Jesus will come back. As her rant went on,...

    SAN FRANCISCO San Francisco may be getting ready to shed its image as a city where anything goes, including clothing. City lawmakers are scheduled to vote Tuesday on an ordinance that would prohibit nudity in most public places, a blanket ban that represents an escalation of a two-year tiff between a devoted group of men who strut their stuff through the city's famously gay Castro District and the supervisor who represents the area. Supervisor Scott Wiener's proposal would make it illegal for a person over the age of 5 to "expose his or her genitals, perineum or anal region...

    The practice of infant circumcision, which carries particular religious significance for Jews, may be outlawed later this year in San Fransisco. A ballot initiative is underway which would ask voters whether to prohibit the practice in November. The proposed new law would make it a misdemeanor to circumcise a person before they are 18-years-old."We don't come at this from a religious angle," Lloyd Schofield told the San Francisco Examiner. "We feel this is a very harmful thing. Parents are guardians. They are not owners of children. It's a felony to tattoo a child." The effort is being taken seriously in...

    OAKLAND, Calif. -- A spokesman for BART's second-largest union announced Thursday that its members would begin a strike Sunday at midnight. BART's board of directors voted unanimously Thursday to unilaterally implement terms and conditions of employment for members of Amalgamated Transit Union Local 1555. BART management held a special meeting today and in a 9-0 vote approved imposing the terms after the union rejected BART's final contract offer in negotiations Wednesday night. Jesse Hunt, president of ATU Local 1555, which represents about 900 train operators, station agents and power workers, said earlier Thursday that if the board took such a...

    Maybe Nancy Pelosi is just sick and tired of John Murtha getting all of the "bennies" from the defense budget. Not anymore, the defense policy bill has a provision that Pelosi has been pushing for a long time. It would speed up the transfer of military bases to private developers. The reason Pelosi wants the provision is Treasure Island, a Navy base that closed in 1993 and sits atop a man-made island in the San Francisco Bay. The city wants the Island and wants it cheap. For years the Navy and the City have been haggling over the sales price,...

    Barack Obama's chief campaign strategist David Axelrod, once worked for a man who was an identified member of the Communist Party USA, a registered agent of the Soviet Union and a paid disseminator of Soviet black propaganda. This man went on to become a key Chicago political fixer who helped elect communist linked politicians including the late Chicago mayor Harold Washington and former US Senator Carol Moseley Braun. This man knew Barack Obama and was a key member of an organisation which endorsed Barack Obama in his 2004 US Senate race. Barack and Michelle Obama were active members of this...
